Question:I am using the putty edition of scp (PSCP.EXE) and get an error message 'Local to local copy not supported'.
I am entering the command like this:
c:\temp>scp archive.zip firstname.lastname@example.org
Why do I get the error message, what does it mean?
Answer:You need to specify the target directory. The correct syntax is
c:\temp>scp archive.zip email@example.com:/tmp/
..if you want to copy your file to the /tmp folder on that machine.
